APPLICATION TO REGISTER LAND BEHIND 94-98 AND 126 HIGH STREET, BECKENHAM AS A TOWN OR VILLAGE GREEN
Planning permission is given for construction of 3 blocks of 4 storey flats on the site, however, local residents backing on to the site formed Central Beckenham Resident’s Association and lodged an application for the site to be designated a ‘Town Green’. If the Town Green application was successful it would have superseded any planning permission granted on the site.
A public enquiry was held by QC Annabel Graham Paul in regard to the Town Green Application, were evidence was given by Central Beckenham Resident’s Association among others. The outcome of the enquiry can be found at the link below.
On the recommendation of the Inspector Report, Bromley Council declined to register land behind 94-98 and 126 High Street, Beckenham as a town or village green. This means the development of 3 blocks of 4 storey flats on the site will likely go ahead
One thought on “Stables Green (R/O 86-94 High Street) Town Green Application Refused”
The new development of blocks of flats marks a massive planning failure by Bromley Council since 2004 when fires broke out on the site. Appeals to develop sympathetic architecture fro a retail mews with useful parking fro the town fell on deaf ears as did appeals to extend conservation areas to control developemnt and enhance the High Street.
I would encourage residents to challenge Bromley Council’s pro developemnt agenda which is spoiling Beckenham and join me in calling for our own Borough Council to be restored putting Beckenham first.
